Yes the Ohio LInuxFest conference is not until October 24,25,26 but the Call for Proposals is in it's last leg!
The Call for Talks ends on 7/24/14 , so you need to get it done soon.
I know, you have been meaning to send in your proposal for a talk at OLF, and it would be a dynamite talk. .....But we need time to evaluate proposals and arrange a schedule.
More info about how to submit here: https://ohiolinux.org/CFP
If you want Free and Open Source Software communities to become more diverse and inclusive, and want to meet others who are working toward the same goal, then come to the Diverse Inclusive Open Source workshop!
The workshop is accepting submissions for short talks, artwork, videos, and more. The deadline for proposals is July 26, 2014.
The Heartbleed Bug is a major vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library. The Ohio LinuxFest website currently runs on Debian Wheezy and was affected by the Heartbleed bug. Thanks to the quick response of the Debian Security team and the OLF infrastructure team, our servers were patched, our SSL certificate was reissued, and we are no longer vulnerable to the Heartbleed bug.
We strongly suggest you change your password here on the OLF website.

The 2014 Ohio LinuxFest is looking for presentations on Friday and Saturday, October 24 and 25. Please visit the CFP page for full details about submitting a proposal. The deadline is July 24, but the sooner you can submit a talk, the better.
Started in 2003, the Ohio LinuxFest is an annual grassroots conference in Columbus, Ohio dedicated to open access for all. Presentations relating to any free and open source software, not just Linux, are welcome. Areas where we've had talks in the past include networking, system administration, development, and community building.
Our audience consists of people at all skill levels. Prior speaking experience is a plus, although we do try to provide opportunities for first-time speakers. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
